Beach House

Beach House, a duo from Baltimore, and Over the Atlantic, a duo from New Zealand, will join forces this Fall in a trek together across the US. Both acts are recent additions to the Carpark Records roster and both share a love for pop music, albeit with very different approaches. Beach House will release its self-titled debut on Oct. 3 while Over the Atlantic will drop its debut, Junica on Sept. 19.

Six Eyes on Beach House:

“dreamy, languid, back-to-the-womb slow pop”

Pitchfork on Beach House:

“Victoria Legrand’s hushed vocals induce hazy summer nostalgia, while sighing slide guitar and spidery organ lines echo the bygone dream-pop of Galaxie 500 and Mazzy Star”

Junkmedia had this to say about Over the Atlantic’s sound:

“Laptop beats imitate found-sounds like Coke-bottle clanks while Telecaster ticks hint at an electro-thrash chorus but instead course forth into a five-beat piano bow that tows its introduction into a nicely-layered finale.”

while Left Hip focused on the influence John Hughes soundtracks have had on the band:

“Nice laptop love to complement the broken-hearteds’ online soul-mate searches.”
